Reciprocal links. Although there have been a lot of talks that say reciprocal links are not important anymore, I beg to differ. By exchanging links with sites that are reputable and relevant, you can still get pretty good link juices for your site.

There are so many charlatans online today, that most people will not believe that you are genuine unless you offer them irrefutable proof. One way to offer this proof is by videos.

Proof is becoming the all important buzzword online today.

There is no “trick” to using this kind of social media – all you have to do is not “pretend” to look authentic…but actually be authentic. You will receive worthwhile traffic and build a good reputation this way. Submit interesting articles you read, or blog posts you find funny, include a profile picture…do anything a real user would do – because that is what you should be. There is no quick fix. You need to act like a human in order to receive human interaction with your site.
Every blogger knows the value of having an active blog that stays on the minds of their readers. If you don’t keep your blog fresh and interesting, most of the traffic you get will only be single visits, which won’t do you much good in the long run.
The most important part, and probably the most time consuming, is finding ways to get your site seen. To get your site seen, link to as many directories as you can (you can list your site in these), write articles (most let you add your URL in a resource box) and get yourself into the main search engines. Google, MSN, and Yahoo are essential. There are many free directories on the Internet. If you want to pay to have this done there are service sites that will put your site in directories for you.
